Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bill Johnson has captured one of the most important concepts in human development - how to dream the will of God. His inspiring and insightful presentation of the concept of "desire" and its role in human activity, creativity, wisdom and personal fulfillment is guaranteed to provide answers to the deep questions of the human heart. I highly recommend this book and hope everyone will read it." -- --Dr. Myles Munroe

5.0 out of 5 stars God as artist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur April 11, 2007
Format:Paperback
Bill Johnson does an amazing job in this book of casting God in a whole new light: not as a stuffy old sod who frowns on our creative dreams and passions, but rather as a cutting-edge genius who encourages them and even gives us the inspiration we need to be successful! If Heaven is the most creative realm imaginable, and it must be since God is the most creative being imaginable, then we can tap into that realm and bring real art, meaning, and solutions to earth for the culture around us.

If you are of the "emerging/missional" church movement, or if you are more in the charismatic/revival stream, or if you are just sick of going through the Christian motions and wondering why church life is so boring, then this book might just be the nudge you're looking for to start dreaming with God.

Bill Johnson explains why allowing God's creative flow to work through you is so important. You don't have to be in a ministry or be a missionary to have God's creative flow working through you. In fact, it's just as important that God-inspired dreams are developed in Christians as they walk in all facets of society. And, that's what makes this book so special. Understanding that there are no limits with God when you're walking in His purposes.

Format:Paperback
I loved this book. More powerful insight from Bill Johnson. Practical thinking to blow lids off of our narrow dreaming. We serve a God of impossibilities and it is time to start thinking like Him! This book will help you do just that!

5.0 out of 5 stars I have tears in my eyes as I am writing. August 8, 2007
Format:Paperback
I am an avid reader. I read every good book I can get my hands on. But this book is different. I has the power to open up a new realm of existence. To tear down the old way of thinking and give you permission to live the good life God intended us to have. Deep down we all crave and hunger for the good life, for good things. But through years of mans tradition we somehow think we are serving the Lord through being defeated, poor and beneath. I am so happy to say that God's Master Plan is very different. Don't take my word for it! Get the book, and then don't take his word for it, but open up the Bible and you will be surprised what you find. Do it for you, for your kids and generations after you. You have that responsibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare to dream with God October 25, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book to make you dissatified with your ordinary life and seek God to change it into the life He has planned for you - extraordinary! It will unlock you to release your God-given desires, passions, and talents and use them to not only change your life but to change the world. The Creator created creation to continue to create itself (Adam and Eve, nature, etc.) but it goes even beyond that to the arts, politics, business, science, and yes, even creative miracles! Dare to dream with God!

A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
"No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing;but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My father I have made known to you." (John 15:15) How would you feel if one day you woke up and the Lord showed you something great? This is how author and pastor Bill Johnson feels in his book Dreaming With God. This story has no setting and it is modern time. This story talks about Bill Johnson and his walk with Christ. Throughout this book there are tons of small stories that occured in his life. My favorite story was titled "Give God your nights." It talked about how we should ask God for visions and dreams before we go to sleep. We should ask God directly because sometimes we may have dreams that make us wonder if it is from our flesh or the Holy Spirit. When God gives us dreams or visions throughout the day or night, we should write them down and then ask God for understanding. I think the meaning of this book is that we are all Gods servants and we should always obey him.

I thought this was an excellent book because it taught me to listen to Gods voice and obey him. The pacing of this book was just Perfect! You will never want to put it down. The authors craft was very good because he kept you amazed throughout the entire story. This book was in Christian perspective because it talked about listening to God and the miracles he makes. This book was realistic fiction because things in this book can happen in real life. I thought this was a very good book and I would recommend this book to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars God's desires becoming our desires! October 29, 2007
By Dawn
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be very encouraging and insightful. In the first chapter, Bill Johnson talks about how important it is to have our minds renewed by the Word, because God's heart becomes our heart, as well as, His desires become our desires. Johnson expounds on that main thought throughout the book by emphasizing the importance of creativity, wisdom and faith.

There were a few points Johnson made that especially ministered to me. One was, "We'll know when our mind is truly renewed, because the impossible will seem logical." As well as, "God not only answers the urgent prayer list, but the secret desires of our heart."

I appreciated that Johnson puts a emphasis on the Word of God being one of the most important factors from which all desires and such flow. It would be easy to write a book like this and get into bad theology, but he does a good job sighting Scripture and thoroughly explaining it. On that note, my only complaint about this book is that Johnson in some cases could have picked better Scriptures to go with a few of his points, but for the most part I felt he was not taking Scripture out of context.
